    Problems compiling SuperKaramba


    I try to install SuperKaramba, but it won't compile.

    I unpacked the .tar.gz, then ran ./configure
    I get an error:

    Code:
    Can't find X includes! Please check your installation and add the correct paths!
    When I type make then, I get the error:

    Code:
    No targets specified and no makefile found
    I'm trying this with Root access.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Regards,

    René

    It's normal make doesn't want to run, since configure aborted . So there is no makefile. Configure is complaining about the path to your X installation. I don't recall exactly how the path would have to be defined.

    Which distro are you using? Chances are there is already a package for your distro available (tgz, rpm, deb, ...). That should be your first option to check out.

    from memory you have to have the kde\X\gnome header files installed for superkaramba to compile.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    Sounds like Kubuntu. Try a distro that isn't so compliling-hostile.

    It's Debian (Sarge) 3.1 Stable.

    I know there is a folder in /etc called X11 (/etc/X11/), which should be the path of X (I guess...).

    How do I let SuperKaramba and/or Debian know that the path is /etc/X11 ?

    René, you don't have to greet at the end of your posts

    Anyway, try apt-get for superkaramba (you do have KDE installed right? Otherwise you need gDesklets or aDesklets).

    apt-get install superkaramba won't work...
    I get an error, but since I got Debian installed with the Dutch language, I don't think you reconize it :P

    Trying to translate it...

    In that case... :P

    The error:

    Code:
    Pakket superkaramba is niet beschikbaar, hoewel er naar verwezen wordt door
    een ander pakket. Mogelijk betekent dit dat het pakket ontbreekt,
    verouderd is, of enkel beschikbaar is van een andere bron
    E: Pakket superkaramba heeft geen installeerbare kandidaat
    Regards,

    Quite bizarre... Maybe you need to add some repositories for apt to search. Which desktop environment are you running? KDE or Gnome?
